Wildflowers & Weeds

We're known in our neighborhood as the 'wildflowers and weeds' house. 
For the first couple of years it was more weeds.  But at the end of the first torrid summer, I hacked the weeds from a swath of baked clay across the front and scattered wildflower seeds.

That fall, it rained.  Once, in November; the first rain in 4 months.  In January, a 3-day ice storm.   

The following spring, wildflowers.

The swath has had ups and downs in the years since, depending on rain.  

This year, we're more wildflowers than weeds.
